We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
London is the capital of the UK and one of the largest population centres in Europe. The city is home to many different universities, including a wide range of specialist providers and some of the UK’s most successful research institutions – with around 372,000 resident students.
The history of London is synonymous with that of the modern city itself. London was the first city to have gas street lighting, the first to have a metropolitan railway and even the first to fix a global time standard (Greenwich Mean Time, established at the Royal Observatory in 1884).
Modern London is a global city and world-renowned financial hub, home to some of the most famous landmarks and entertainment venues in Europe. These include Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Houses of Parliament, the Shard (the tallest building in the UK), the London Eye and Buckingham Palace (home of the Queen of England and the British Royal Family).
While studying a Masters in London you’ll enjoy access to an unparalleled range of cultural resources and leisure activities, from historic buildings to famous shopping districts, theatres and sports stadiums. World-class museums and galleries in London include the Natural History Museum, the V&A, the Tate Modern and the National Gallery. Sports fans can attend a Premier League game at one of London’s several football clubs, watch rugby at Twickenham or see some tennis at Wimbledon.
You’ll also find that London’s many airports and railway connections provide excellent opportunities to explore the rest of the UK, or travel further afield to continental Europe.
There is a huge range of student accommodation available in London, from dedicated postgraduate halls of residence to privately rented apartments and houses.
Many of the most renowned universities in London are part of the federal University of London, established in 1836. They include elite Russell Group universities such as the London School of Economics, University College London, Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London as well as other prestigious institutions. Imperial College London, specialising in Science, Engineering, Medicine and Business, was a part of the University of London until 2007, when it left the federal system.
The city is also home to a wide range of other higher education providers, many of which offer their own specialised Masters programmes. These include the Royal College of Art, the University of the Arts London and St Mary’s University, Twickenham.
London enjoys one of the strongest jobs markets in the world, with opportunities available for talented postgraduates in any number of fields. The City of London is a global financial hub that hosts the offices of many banks and multinational organisations, while East London Tech City (also known as Silicon Roundabout) is a magnet for technology companies like Google, Microsoft and Amazon.
London is also the media capital of the UK, hosting the headquarters of the BBC and many national newspapers. International news organisations like Thomson Reuters, AP and Bloomberg also have offices in London.
